The Jurupa Valley Building Department was declared "Building Department of the Year" by the California Building Officials Organization CALBO at the May 2021 Annual Business Conference.
The Building and Safety Department's goal is to protect the people who live and work in the City through the review of construction plans before any work begins. They then inspect all work throughout the completion of the project.
The Department of Building and Safety provides plan checking and building inspection services. They are responsible for enforcing the:
- California Building Code (CBC)
- City’s Municipal Code
- Electrical Code
- Mechanical Codes
- Plumbing Code
- Any other pertinent provisions of the County, State, or Federal health codes
The Department is also responsible for maintaining records of all projects within the City.
Committed to Safety
The Building and Safety Department is committed to protecting the lives and safety of the residents and visitors of Jurupa Valley, preserving the city’s quality of life, and contributing to the city’s economic development. This is accomplished through the implementation of the building, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, and energy codes in the City of Jurupa Valley.
The Department provides plan review and field inspections of buildings to ensure a safe, accessible, and energy-efficient environment throughout our community. The Department administers local and state laws related to building construction, maintenance, use, repair, and rehabilitation.
The Department also manages the city’s permit system which coordinates and streamlines the construction permit process. Applications for construction projects are submitted to the Building Department where the review process is coordinated among several departments. This provides the customer with a comprehensive single point of contact throughout the entire review and permit process.
